"Are you planning to pick up a Gigabyte GA-P45-DQ6? Over the course of this article, we'll show you where it was made as Gigabyte invited bit-tech to one of its Taiwanese factories, allowing us to roam around its facilities.Check it out over here.
The Nan-Ping factory is about an hour out from Taipei City where Computex was happening in full swing; it's one of four manufacturing plants that Gigabyte owns. The second is located in Ping-Jen in Taiwan and the remaining two factories are in China: Ning-Bo (just south of Shanghai) and Dong-Guan further south still. Nan-Ping isn't your typical expansive factory – it's almost as tall as it is wide, with eight huge floors offering 45,000 square metres of space for 1,200 employees.
The factory features eleven SMT lines (seventh Floor) providing 400,000 motherboards, 300,000 graphics cards and 5,000 server products a month. There are also six lines of DIP and Testing (fourth and fifth floors) and four lines of packing all those motherboard, VGA and server products up on the second floor.
There are also two lines of whole system assembly for its OEM and retail business on the third floor and two lines for its mobile assembly unit (20,000 units per month) for Asia on the sixth floor."
